It has been quite some time since I have seen a cooler from Nexus cross my desk. But alas, they have released a new cooler that uses an older design idea that I remember in the FLC-3000. But it seems they definitely went back to the drawing board and reconfigured the layout, moved the fan on top of the cooler instead of inside it, just to hit a couple of key points. The cooler we are going to see also keeps the angled approach to cooling.
Rethinking the basic fin arrangement and shape, this time Nexus gives us a cooler that is crossed between the older FLC-3000, but also uses a tower arrangement for the fins. In order to lean the fan downward, the fins have been cut in intervals and steeped back, allowing the pitch of the fan. Speaking of the fan, they went larger this time and jumped to the typical 120mm size we are all used to. Also or a bit of added direction, this cooler flaunts a stylish shroud.
The basics behind all of this are two simple technologies. There is SkyveTek and HOC. SkyveTek refers to a pre-cooler design where they take a single solid piece of aluminum. Carefully they thinly cit the aluminum block and bend the fins into place. This cooler is then placed on top of the base for additional surface area. HOC is Nexus' way of saying that the heatpipes make direct contact with the CPU. Nexus says it makes for a better transfer of heat, but personally I am not sold on the technology. Our current top two coolers don't use it.
